Current and Upcoming Shows
- April 2 - July 27 .. exhibition, Stories in Self-Portraits,.... Rincliffe Gallery .... Drexel University ... (third floor Main Building) 3141 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia. .. free and open to the public............opening reception on Thursday, April 5, 5:30-7:30pm.. Nowadays, selfies are everywhere. As a global digital genre, the selfie "expresses, develops, expands and intensifies the long history of the self-portrait," according to visual theorist Nicholas Mirzoeff. The self-portrait has been called the defining artistic genre of modernity, growing in popularity and importance since the 15th century. It has been at the forefront of cultural development, influencing society's and individuals' sense of identity and selfhood. But the nature of the self-portrait remains elusive.
The dictionary defines self-portrait as "a self-made portrait of oneself." And yet the depictions in self-portraits do not necessarily look like the artist or represent things that actually happened. The idea "of oneself," then, must be understood more broadly than mere appearances. This exhibition invites you to explore local artists' experiences making self-portraits to discover the depth of what "of oneself" can mean.

"At the root of all Green political action is nonviolence, starting
with how we live our lives, taking small, unilateral steps toward peace
in everything we do. Green politics requires us to be both tender
and subversive. Affirming tenderness as a political value is already
subversive. In Green politics, we practice tenderness in relations with
others; in caring for ideas, art, language, and culture; and in cherishing
and protecting the Earth. To think Green is to build solidarity with
those working for social justice and human rights everywhere, not bound
